I spent five days in this apartment in July 2016. It is clean, secure, centrally located and is well equipped with everything that's required for one or two people on a short break. It has a large bathroom with a bath and a shower - which is very useful for those who like to bathe in plenty of hot water and, most important for me, a real double bed with a proper mattress! Many Russian apartments offer only a sofa-bed, which I personally find uncomfortable.
Everything about the booking was easy and straightforward from the initial booking email exchanges, collecting the keys, dealing with a problem that occurred (all the power went off and there was no electricity but the owner/manager Andrei came round and fixed it within 15 minutes - excellent service!) and collecting the keys on departure.
In short, I would happily recommend this apartment to any western visitor who might be a little bit nervous about renting a place in Tikhvin or indeed to anybody else who needs a cheap but comfortable place to stay for a few days. I would be happy to use it again, and probably will do when I'm next back in Russia.
